Nominations Update

Nominations are going very well - we've got over 3,000 nominations and there's still a week left to nominate blogs.

On a more serious note... A couple of sites have been entered in the junk file (their existing nominations remain) because their supporters were using the nomination post comment sections to hold running conversations. We've got a specially designated area to "smack talk" or debate who should be nominated for what - The Weblog Awards Forums. While we welcome their nominations, repetitively entering nominations for the same site just makes the finalist selection process harder.

Supporters of those sites - you'll figure out who you are when your comments aren't published - are free to carry on their conversations in the forums.

Thanks!

PS - Don't forget to spread the word about the nominations process!
